“Carla/Titi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

If you visit Trinidad then you must live in the Hostal Marilu Y Nelson. It's A casa particual where you can get help with everything. The family is fantastic, the food is magical, the house is very nice and clean, the house is near everything and the family will help you with exactly everything you need. Even if you are going to another city. The family is warm and honest. Me and my group would be in trinidad 3-4 days but stayed for 8 days. Then my group went on and I went back to the family and stayed for 5 days to. Trinidad is a great city. Commend this hostal. You will definitely not regret it, I promise!

We wanted to stay only one night, we ended up spending three nights here.
The family is very welcoming, the food is good and the rooms are nice and clean (only small flaw was the missing toilet seat in the room downstairs, but this might also have been solved in the meantime).
The location is great just 2 minutes away from the plaza mayor.
The house has two very nice terraces on the roof and dinner and breakfast are served there.
The car can be parked just in front of the door and the neighboor will watch it for a couple of CUC a day.
A good place to stay, I can only recommend it.

I spent several wonderful days here. The food was great as well as the service. The attention that we received from Marilus and Carlos was second to none and we will never forget it.

Trinidad is a wonderfull city, but if you are staying at casa Marilu it is probably the best part of the whole journey. We stayed longer than we planed before. The familar atmosphere and the warmth in this house, the great food, the terasse with this gorgeous view over Trinidad. Everything is perfect for a really nice stay there.

We had some wonderful days with this family. Marielu and Carlos made our stay as if we were at home. They went out of their way to make sure, that even when George asked for coconuts then Carlos went shopping.
If we get the chance we will certainly return to Hostal Marielu. We are over-whelmed with the hospitality we have met everywhere in Cuba and hope that Marielu will get many more tourists.

Room Tip: If you have visited a family you like then take their advice for the next casa particular. We certai...
